Ttr Icon USA Week in Review April 11 -17 2011

from USATF Statistician Glen McMicken

American Record-holder and World No. 1 David Oliver zipped to a windy 13.12 (+4.6) in the prelims and a breezy 13.09 in the final, but it was Kellie Wells who had the most stunning run of the day as she ripped to a 12.35w (+3.7) at the Tom Jones Memorial meet in Gainesville, Fla.

Wells, who suffered a heartbreaking hamstring tear after the Olympic Trials semis in 2008, showed that she will be a major threat for Daegu honors and onward to 2012 as she demolished the field in her prelim section with the fourth-fastest time ever under any conditions by a U.S. athlete.

American Junior 100m record-holder Jeff Demps of Florida also rode the wind to a 9.96w (+2.4) in the 100m.

Miami's most successful female athletic alumna, 2005 World 100m champ Lauryn Williams, doubled her distance and garnered a world-leading 22.65 in the 200m at the Hurricane Invitational.

Oklahoma's Mookie Salaam, the NCAA indoor champ, also took over the world lead in the men's deuce with his 20.27 at the Jacobs Invitational in Norman. Lance Brooks whirled the discus 63.11m/207-0 for a U.S. leader.
